JORDYN

Experienced Mandarin teacher available for private tutoring.

Experienced, professional, friendly Mandarin teacher available for private tutoring.My name is Jordyn. I am positive, enthusiastic and well educated. If you are looking for a mandarin teacher, I am your best choice- native Mandarin teacher.

The following are my experiences in studying and teaching:

  • Got TCSOL certificate( Teachers of Chinese to speakers of other Languages)
  • Capable of working with students at all ages and on all levels (Beginners, Intermediate and Advanced levels)
  • Make specific plans for each student to target his/her interests and weaknesses.
  • Fun learning materials are also provided to help the student better grasp the concept and practice at home.
  • A lot of emphasis on one-on-one practical daily conversations, grammar and vocabulary building, sentence formation, accent reduction, pinyin spelling, and simple character writing. I believe that good learning environment affects the learning quality greatly. I have a nice and comfy teaching studio for students to learn Chinese.
